Overboard (1987) was released in 1987. In The Best of Times (1986) starring Kurt Russell, released just the year before, there are references to "Gigi", who is Kurt Russell's character's wife and also one of the opposing football players was known as "Dr. Death". In Overboard the letters "G.G." are spray painted on the boys' club house and they also refer to "Dr. Death" coming to rescue their "mother". Both movies star Kurt Russell. See more »
Joanna grew up in New York City and is extremely sheltered, as evidenced by the fact that she has no idea how to do household chores or even make sandwiches, so it seems unlikely that she would have spent much time outdoors. However, she's instantly able to identify poison oak on the kids' faces, despite the fact that their own school principal had missed it earlier. See more »
I watched this movie for the first time when I was 10 and still watching it to this day. The cast is excellent and the storyline is silly but you just can't help yourself laughing at all of Goldie's screw-ups or Kurt's incompetent ways of parenting. The supporting cast is great, what more can I say??, if you ever see this in the video store, it's worth renting. GO OVERBOARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
